Journey afresh into the wonder,
beauty and glory to be found
in the age-old story of Christmas.
This beautiful little gift book weaves together different voices, forms and perspectives, in a collection of thought-provoking and inspiring poems that retell and reframe the Nativity story. A rich tapestry that offers new insights and moments to pause and reflect in the busiest period of the year.
The perfect accompaniment through the Advent period, A Quickening invites us to encounter this story for ourselves.
With words that speak to the heart as well as the head, helping us to focus again on the One at the centre of it all – Jesus.
Beautifully designed with pen and ink hand-drawn illustrations by illustrator Kelsey Johnston, this is a book to treasure or give as a meaningful gift this Christmas, for those who wish to experience this story anew and for those who do not know the story at all.
